Brown Declared Bankrupt
A member of Manchester United’s famous 1999 treble winning squad, Wes Brown, has been declared bankrupt at the High Court, Daily Mail reports.
HMRC filed a bankruptcy petition against Brown, who reportedly earned £50,000-a-week during his playing days at Old Trafford, on February 27.
The petition was rubber-stamped at the High Court on April 12 and listed on The Gazette, the official public record.
In 2022 it was reported Brown split from his wife Leanne, 46, who appeared in the reality TV show Real Housewives of Cheshire. They married in 2009 and had three daughters together.

The 43-year-old reportedly moved out of the home he shared with Leanne and their children Halle, Lilia, and Lola.
A source told The Sun at the time: “Wes and Leanne split before Christmas . There were no third parties involved; it is just a sad fact that their marriage has run its course.
“Leanne has flourished in single life and has removed her wedding ring. She has told people she feels free and is working hard on her businesses and flourishing as an independent woman.
“Wes meanwhile is carrying on as best he can. There have been rumours of trouble in their marriage for a while but they put a brave face on publicly.”
The source added the former couple are doing their best to co-parent their children and live separate lives.
In 2016, the couple slashed the asking price for their previous home, a mansion in Prestbury, Cheshire, to £2.4million after it had gone onto the market six years earlier for £4.5m.
Brown was in United’s first team for 15 years having come through the Old Trafford club’s academy ranks.
He made 362 appearances for the club, winning five Premier League titles, two FA Cup, two League Cups and two Champions Leagues during an illustrious career.
Brown was capped 23 times for England and also played for Sunderland and Blackburn Rovers after he left United in 2011.
